Winnie and Walter 2nd Birthday Celebrations - Take 2!

Hello friends,
I am  back again with a card today and I am pretty excited about it too....A few days ago I came across a card on Instagram created by Diane Jaquay and it had a plaid background which was created using Distress inks and flat brushes. I was so inspired by the gorgeous card that Diane had made that I had to give it a try and here's what I have created using this technique

 And a another view :
This is how I created the panel for my card using three different colors of Distress ink along with two different sizes of paint brush to create the plaid pattern.

To create my focal, I first die cut three circles using different sizes of circle die and I lightly colored my circles using Distress inks and foam mounted them in the centre of my card. The flowers and leaves are from the Winnie & Walter :In Bloom : Elsa's Flora and In Bloom : Anna's Flora
I die cut the banner using The big,the bold and Extra cutaways on a piece of Vellum and the sentiment is from the : The Big,the bold and extra stamp set using Versafine  Onyx Black ink.
I have water colored my flowers and leaves using various Distress inks on a piece of watercolored cardstock and fussy cut it before popping it up on my card panel.

I am entering my card in the following challenges :
